This is the place for a hearty and filling breakfast! Especially the breakfast burger that is pretty much an all-in-one-bite type of meal. The potatoes are also a go-to choice. The service was snappy too. Manager of the place served us efficiently with a cheery attitude! I'll definitely come back for more!!

Stopped here for breakfast after a hike and it hit the spot. I had the Sante Fe Scramble with a side of crunchy French toast. Yum!!! Everyone else was happy with their selections as well. Definitely would come back!

This place was really good, friendly and fast. With so many options surrounding you it gets overwhelming to know where to go. But we landed here and are leaving full and happy. Tip...get the breakfast potatoes, they are delicious!
Would come back for sure. The only negative which is also a positive is they have a huge menu selection.

I have been going to Jinky's Studio Cafe for many years now, but this is my first time writing a review. Let me first say that I live soooo close to this restaurant and don't know why I don't visit often. I love this place, their food and service.
On 04/02/16 I was craving a juicy burger and the 1st place that came into my mind was Jinky's. (don't know why) after a long day at the laundromat, I got so hungry and decided to call and see how late were they open. it was around 9:20pm on a Saturday. Since they were open til 11p., I said ok, I am for sure going there tonight.
Went in and was greeted by Jason P. He seated me right away and gave me their menu. Now, let me tell you guys that their menu is MASSIVE AND EXTENSIVE. You can choose anything from breakfast to lunch to dinner and drinks.
I have tried almost everything on their menu throughout the years that I have been coming to this lovely restaurant. It has a nice, big patio and inside seating that can fit a lot of people. I have never had a bad experience with Jinky's.
My waiter Jason was very nice, friendly and took my order right away and brought it out within 15 minutes of me waiting. I was STARVING!! I got their plain salad, calamari, a cheeseburger with onion rings and water. Everything tasted beyond my expectations. Just DELICIOUS! Also a shout out to the music that they were playing in the restaurant. Loved every song from the 80s and 90s.
Which made my dining experience even better. Restaurant is clean, cozy, but kind of old looking. It kind of needs a little remodeling, but doesn't really bother me, because everyone is so nice and the most important part is the FOOD.
I should remember about this place and come here more often....especially when it is so close to home. :) Thanx Jinky's. Love your breakfast by the way. Will be back very soon. Keep up the good work and the chef that makes these delicious foods.

After our hotel breakfast bill nearly bankrupt us, we took the advice of someone on the pier to come visit Jinky's for breakfast. Great non-fussy breakfast menu. It opens really early too (around 6am?) when the rest of Santa Monica doesn't seem to wake up until after 10am. Go early to get a seat, it gets much busier at 9am. Great for kids too.

Obviously the most popular breakfast place in Santa Monica - especially Sunday morning - 30 min wait !
Great choices - traditional American fare and great pancakes

This place was recommended to us by a Harbor Police Officer we stopped to ask if he knew of a good place to have breakfast within walking distance of the Santa Monica Pier.
The food and the service was so great that we went back the next morning!!!! I would highly recommend the Mac and Cheese Breakfast. It was so good my husband ordered it both mornings.
I need to mention an employee who was exceptional!!!! The customer service we received from Adrian was unbelievable. We were not sitting in his station but he refilled our coffee, got us water and removed our plates when we were done.
When I visit Santa Monica again, I will be sure to stop there for breakfast!!!!!

I absolutely dig this little breakfast spot in Santa Monica. Their menu is quite extensive so be prepared for lots of options. My go-to option is the eggs florentine with potatoes. So delicious! I've never had to wait for table but this place does get very busy on the weekend so go early! Staff is super friendly. I don't like however there is only one bathroom for male and female. Definitely give this place shot if you're in the area.
